HERE ARE THE YOUNG MEN (Netherlands, Afghanistan, 2009-2010)

The Dutch Marine Corps is an elite unit that does not admit women. Their training is regarded as one of the most demanding in the Dutch armed forces. In her photo series HERE ARE THE YOUNG MEN, Claire Felicie investigates who the young men are who would choose this training, and how they coped with their dispatch to a war zone. For that, she photographed the marines of the 13th infantry company before, during and after their tour of duty in the Afghan province of Uruzgan. In addition to the men themselves, she also photographed their good luck charms and the ‘message for a loved one’ that she asked them to write.
